Jessie J sounds like "Marge Simpson" after losing her voice.
The 'Price Tag' hitmaker - who has an irregular heartbeat and suffered a stroke aged 18 - likened herself to the croaky 'Simpsons' character after suffering from throat problems, but she refused to cancel an interview with Ray D'Arcy on Today FM.

In a post on her Instagram page, she wrote: "My voice has decided to be friends with the air con today and dry out to Marge Simpson vibes!
"So I'm in bright trousers and will do all I can to be entertaining with hardly no voice! Let's do this! Today FM official I'm live now!! *whispering*. (sic)"
However she was later forced to pull out of a scheduled 2FM interview, where around 150 fans had gathered.
"Just want to say sorry to all the heartbeats at @RTE2fm for being unable to come and see you," she tweeted.
As we just said, @JessieJ has cancelled as her voice is gone. All our audience are getting tx to the gig tomorrow. These things happen.— Rick O'Shea (@rickoshea) July 9, 2013
Instead, 5 girls who had just turned up outside the door, sang to our audience and played Price Tag with a Uke. They were brilliant :-)— Rick O'Shea (@rickoshea) July 9, 2013
However the fans later posted a video to YouTube wishing their idol all the best.
But the 25-year-old star - who recently quit her judging position on talent show 'The Voice' - reassured her fans she knows exactly how to get her vocals back in tip top condition.
She said: "To any of my contestants listening - yes, I lose my voice too, guys. You have to rest your voice, it's so hard.
"I know every trick of the trade [to treat a bad throat] - I know exactly why my voice is like this, I know exactly what I need to do to get it back. I'm just human."
Jessie J played Live at the Marquee in Cork on Sunday night and plays Dublin's Phoenix Park as support for Justin Timberlake tonight.
UPDATE 10.20am: Jessie has been forced to pull out of tonight's Phoenix Park gig and will be replaced by The Coronas, promoters MCD said.
